IBM Think pad type 2366 - memory upgrade

Because from the purchase it had 256 Mb I bought NANYA mem card but was wery surprised because the computer does not see it in slot #2. After a few experiments by interchanging mem cards I realised that whatever is in slot #1 the machine works OK and slot #2 is obviously blind. Is there any trick to do or the time is to acquire a new machine
Best regards. Stanko-

I want to upgrade the ram in my IBM thinkpad R52 laptop. Do I have to buy DDR1 or DDR2?


You have to buy DDR2. The compatible memory is DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM, 1.8v

To install the memory, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the system; then disconnect the ac adapter and all cables from the system.
  2. Close the system display, and turn it over.
  3. Remove the battery.
  4. Loosen the screw on the memory slot cover; then remove the cover.

    If the SO-DIMM is already in the memory slot, remove it to make roomfor the new one by pressing out on the latches on both edges of thesocket at the same time. Be sure to save it for future use.

  5. Find the notch on the side of the SO-DIMM.
    Note: To avoid damaging the SO-DIMM, do not touch its contact edge.
  6. Withthe notched end of the SO-DIMM toward the right side of the socket,insert the SO-DIMM into the socket at an angle of about 20 degrees (1);then press it firmly (2).

  7. Pivot the SO-DIMM downward until it snaps into place.
  8. Make sure that the card is firmly fixed in the slot and does not move easily.
  9. Replace the memory slot cover by aligning the back side of the cover first and then tightening the screw.
    Note:When you have added or upgraded a memory card, do not use your systemuntil you have closed the cover. Never use the system with the coveropen.
  10. Put the battery back in place, turn the system over again, and reconnect the cables.

To make sure that the SO-DIMM is installed correctly, do as follows:
  1. Turn the system on.
  2. Whilethe "To interrupt normal startup, press the blue Access IBM button"message is displayed at the lower-left of the screen, press Access IBMbutton.
  3. Select Start setup utility.
  4. The BIOS Setup Utility screen appears. The "Installed memory" item shows the total amount of memory installed in your system.

    For example, if your system has 256 MB of memory and you install a256-MB SO-DIMM in it, the quantity shown in "Installed memory" shouldbe 512 MB.

The compatible memory can be purchased here online.

How to upgrade a Dell Latitude CPX - Intel P3 500-650 laptop


I have a CPX H500GT. To get it to run XP Pro to run right, max out the ram. And get a larger harddrive. Xp uses a substantial amount of space.

Memory upgrade


Usually there will be 2 screws to remove (these may be hidden via rubber pads, or labels). The appropriate panel will have a RAM "picture" next to it.
